Verse of the Day:
“I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.” (Galatians 2:20)
I had a much better day today with DearDaughter. When she awoke the very first thing she and I did (moreso me since DearDaughter is only 16 months old) is pray to God that our day would be glorifying to him. It used to be a daily habit of mine to start each day meditating on God's word and prayer. For some reason after being diligent about that for a time, I again started thinking that I had more important things to do than start off with God. I'd push my devotion time to mid-day. Now, that time is almost non-existent again.
Lord, why is there this constant ebb and flow in our spiritual walk? Help me make this journey a continual flow, always high on seeing you and your glory, grace, and mercy!!!
Anyway, DearHubby came home and the house was a little cluttered, but I decided that I did my best today and I wasn't going to sin so that my house would look "perfect", which it never does anyhow. I got the most important tasks done that I had planned and the rest of the time I spent it with DearDaughter. It still wasn't as much time as I would have hoped, but it caused less whininess from DearDaughter and I didn't get too frustrated. My main goal was to constantly ask myself if my heart attitude was glorifying to God and that helped in keeping me accountable to how I treated and reacted to DearDaughter. I was more considerate of her needs and tried to give more of myself to her.
